Risks of contraceptive implants (IUDs). Anyone have one?

The birth control hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) has grown popular because it can protect against pregnancy for up to 5 years. But MANY women may suffer from severe side effects including:

  • persistent pain,

  • abnormal and heavy menstrual periods,

  • the device/coils moving outside the fallopian tubes,

  • spontaneous migration of the device and puncture/perforation of the uterus.

  • pelvic Inflammatory disease,

  • copper toxicity symptoms include headaches, fatigue, insomnia, depression, skin rashes, spaciness or premenstrual syndrome, fibroids and endometriosis.

  • bacterial infections leading to hysterectomies…are you getting the gist!!!

Sadly I haven’t come across a client yet that hasn’t suffered from one or more of these symptoms. So it’s really important to consider is the risks of using an IUD worth it.'

Synthetic hormones can wreak havoc so it’s worth investigating if you’ve been suffering from the abovementioned side effects. Let’s start the conversation about contraception options today.
